is that the options for the obama administration in syria would remain somewhat limited. the movement of these weapons all known to u.s. intelligence was first reported in the "new york times." officials confirmed it to fox news if president assad uses these weapons, american retaliatory options could range from subversive covert actions to the arming of syrian rebels to the direct use of force. >> their actions against their own people have been tragic but there is no doubt that there is line between even the horrors that they have already inflicted on the syrian people and moving to what would be internationally condemned step of utilizing their chemical weapons. >> that was secretary clinton speaking in prague today but keeping it vague as you saw shep as to what washington might do about it. >> this isn't the first time that the president and the secretary of state have drawn this red line. >> no, it's not. and critics of the obama administration warn that setting such a high bar to greater u.s. involvement in that conflict, namely the waging of chemical war by a nation against its own citizenry c
did that happen? why did hat happpn because it is continuing? >> because americ and president obama's administration ignored the warning signs and what the muslim brotherhood and what radicals are about. when president obama first becameme president and he went to egypt and gave his first address, his first speech in cairo, in ept, he made it a point to invite the muslim brotherhood to the chagrin of the mubarak regime. he insisted that the muslim brotherhood would be sitting in two front seats addressing his speech. that gave them a importance in power gaining respect of america and the support of america. america miscalculated as to who they were supporting in the middle east and they continue this miscalculation right now and unless we wake up and really make a drastic change in our foreign policy america will pay a heavy price down the road. melissa: yeah, dramatic conclusion. thank you so much for coming on. i hope you come back. >> thank you. have a great day. melissa: what's in a name? well apparently $35,000 and counting. one man raking it in for auctioning off his name for
. the rest of the world particularly the obama administration, is happy to let a version of democracy play out. we will see how democratic this process is. the rest of the world will shift attention to syria. there is concern whether or not they are actually preparing chemical weapons in the fight against the rebels. there is a military concern in syria. egypt is an issue but not a pressing issue. >>shepard: we are not getting trick chemicals of headlines from jordan and bahrain. >>guest: when the arab spring happened it cracked open tensions that have been existing for decades and the muslim brotherhood felt finally they had an opportunity to express themselves in a constrained society and they do thought want to let go of the powers they is gotten in the election. >>shepard: thank you. it is extreme the weather on the west coast, storm soaked northern california cannot catch a break. they are bracing for another drenching on top of the 20" of rain that has fallen in some places. the latest storm is the fur the to slam the region in just a week. the nonstop rain created sinkholes across n
suffocated from paralyzing effects of the toxin. this new intelligence has obama administration so concerned harsh warnings came today from the president himself. >> i want to make it absolutely clear to assad and those unhis command world is watching. use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons there will be consequences and you will be held accountable. >>reporter: senior official tells abc news that there are contingent plans for military action if the weapons became a threat. syrian regime today said it wouldn't use chemical weapon under any circumstances but president assad father used them and assad has been mass kering his citizens for nearly 2 straight years. martha, abc news, washington. >> u.s. find it snevl a quandary here. imposes crippling sanction on iran and but they are buying anti-venom to the help soldiers from this snake. it can paralyze the victim in an hour. the snake refs to let go when biting the victim. tenacious. only anti-venom comes from iran but military purchase may violate sanction
's chemical weapon facilities. it's not clear whether the obama administration would call on u.s. troops to do that or try to outsource the job to jordan or another mideast alley. >> the senate passed defense spending bill. it moves on to a conference committee to reconcile with the house version. it includes amendment from the senator john mccain to require a report on possible military action that could be used in syria. are famous people who want to take away your gun rights hypocrites? that is later in the grapevine. up next, riot guns and tear gas in cairo. egypt rises up against the president again. um... uh... um... hm... umm... uh... oh ! the windows phone 8x by htc on verizon. it features easy to navigate live tiles that are simple to customize. just pin what matters most right to your homescreen. exclusively with data sense-- a feature that makes the most of you plan. only on verizon. >> bret: unestimate today had 100,000 egyptians taking to the streets this afternoon to show their outrage over a perceived power grab by the president. correspondent steve harrigan is in the capital wh
, frankly, this gives the white house and this gives the obama administration much more bargaining leverage. >> well, the former treasury secretary has one thing to say but many other voices are a virtual kcacophony where wolf blitzer has to sit every day. >> in the short term the president has more leverage right now because if they do nothing, let's say they avoid any legislation between now and the end of the year, starting january 1st we go over that so-called fiscal cliff, tax rates go up not just for the rich but for the middle class, for everyone, all those cuts in domestic spending and naths security spending, they go into effect. people aren't going to be happy about that, and the president will be able to say, look, i begged them, i repeatedly said 98% of the american public, they wouldn't get a tax increase if we just took them out of the equation, let's pass legislation extending the bush tax cuts for everyone earning under $250,000 a year. they didn't do it. so, you know, he'll have some leverage on that in terms of the politics because politically, you know, the polls all are
from the paralyzing effects of the toxin. this new intelligence has the obama administration so concerned, harsh warnings came from the president himself. >> i want to make it absolutely clear to assad and those under his command the world is watching. the use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons, there will be consequences, and you will be held accountable. >> reporter: a senior official tells abc news there are contingency plans for military action if the weapons became a threat. the syrian regime said it would not use chemical weapons under any circumstance, but president ass assad's father used them, and assad himself has been massacring his citizens for nearly two straight years. martha raddatz, abc news, washington. >> it's a little hard to believe since tens of thousands of folks have been killed already, use of chemical weapons would be off limits to the syrian regime right now. considering rebels have made advances that may be one of the most powerful weapons the government has in its arsenal rig
her? >> in the obama administration, yes. what are her qualifications? let's list them. she's a major fundraiser for president obama -- megyn: okay, that will begin and end the list. [laughter] >> no, it doesn't, no. she's a leftist in her politics, she's a celebrity who supported him in his re-election, and she's a monster to work with. are those not diplomatic characteristics that we'd welcome in someone who goes to london as our ambassador? i'm joking, obviously. megyn: well, you list the accurate, you know, the stuff you said about her is reportedly true. i mean, she's notorious for being difficult to work with and so on. but all the presidents do this. this is what they all do. if you raise a lot of money for me and i'm running for president, you're going to be an ambassador. that's half the reason people do it. >> however, president obama back in '08 when he first became president, he said he was going to appoint more professionals with diplomatic experience to the service. since then he has appointed 59 ambassadors, 40 of which have no diplomatic experience -- megyn: but she is
freely in the eastern libyan city. what is going on here? >> i think it's a big problem for the obama administration and for the country. the president was right on september 12th when he said that the world needs to understand that when the united states is messed with there will be retribution, and what we've seen thus far, whether it's in the ap story, or a new york times story with one of the suspected plotters of the attack sipping fruit drinks with reporters, or, you know, the fact that the fbi continue get on the ground for several weeks after the attack there doesn't seem to be the urgency that the president suggested that there would be. i think the world needs to see that beyond the immediate concern of just bringing to justice the people who actually committed the act. bill: why does it appear to be such a low priority? what would explain that? >> well one guess would be that it isn't a high priority. this is not something that seems to have taken up a lot of time of folks in the white house, of folks elsewhere. i think if there were the urgency that the president said ther
.s., the obama administration, nato now obviously very concerned about the regime of president assad potentially using chemical weapons, poison gas against its own people. here's the question, what is the difference killing civilians in syria with bombs from jet fighters or attack helicopters as opposed to using say poison gas or chemical warfare? >> that's a good question. in one sense in moral terms, there is no difference and almost 40,000 people have died in syria already. but i think the use of chemical weapons and poison gas, i think the fatalities would be very much greater. and it does cross a line. these aren't judgments that you can make in any scientific way. but i think what your administration, the international community is signaling to president assad, if you cross that line, there will be a strong reaction. >> those are tough words coming from president obama, from secretary of state hillary clinton, from the nato secretary-general today in brussels. but is that enough to president bahar al assad from using chemical weapons or is there something else the international community s

so far. this is the obama's administration offer. every day here in "the new york times"of the two proposals a the fiscal cliff continues to dominate washington here today and this week. irandy in alabama, republicans. caller: i think both of the approaches here are ridiculous. we keep talking about reforming the taxes when it is so complicated that an average person cannot even do it. it's really time to stop reforming the idea of taxes with all these tax ideas. it all it's going to do is drive up inflation. every time we raise taxes, inflation goes up. we really need to go to something like a consumption tax. there's a lot of space out your that do not even haven't come taxes, and their roads are really nice and they do not have been come taxes. they live off other taxes. i think they need to try to fix this whole thing was out just keeping throwing money at it. increasing rates and all of this stuff, it's madness. host: we showed you what senate majority leader harry reid had to say it in reaction to last night proposal from speaker john boehner. house democrats are having a cau
the number of permits during the obama administration's first term and there will be a price to pay in our energy costs over the next four years. we hear people saying over and over and over again, americans must pay their fair share. the rich must pay their fair share. everyone must pay their fair share and on that i am in 100% agreement with our president, with leader reid at the other end of this building, with my friends across the aisle, democrats here who want everybody to pay their fair share, i'm in 1 pun% agreement. we -- 100% agreement. we absolutely should do that. make everybody pay their fair share. lots of folks use the metaphor, let's make sure everybody has some skin in the game. well, if you really want to have everyone pay their fair share, there is an easy answer and fortunately it would drive this economy to brand new heights, it would drive this country and our economy to a new economic renaissance. it would be incredible and all of our friends around the country who are suffering, who don't have even $3 a gallon to pay for gasoline, it would help them when they can't
with the bill. press secretary jay carney said mr. obama is determined to phase out the bush administration tax cuts for families making more than $250,000 a year. >> he will not sign a bill that extends those tax rates for the top 2%. we can't afford it. it is not a wise economic policy or wise fiscal policy. and it would defeat the principle of balance that he has embraced. >> so with less than a month to go before the deadline, we've now had an offer and a counteroffer, but arguably, no real attempt at compromise. democrats say republicans haven't detailed how they would increase tax revenue and they haven't offered enough of it and republicans say democrats haven't agreed to serious entitlement program cuts. steve, gretchen, brian? >> steve: thank you very much, live from the north lawn. ten minutes before the top of the hour. you probably remember the $6 million man. >> wed into to make the world's first bionic man better than he was before. better, stronger, faster. >> steve: our next guest says he can make this a reality, merging man with machine. it does not involve lee majors. >> gretc
